Introduction to Arduino class (Arduino 101) August 2012

August 8, 2012 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Workshop 88 is offering our introduction to the Arduino platform at our makerspace in Glen Ellyn. Class attendees will learn how to configure their arduino programming environment, how to design simple circuits for interfacing with the arduino and how to write simple programs to control the arduino. What is Arduino, you ask? From their home page:

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

You can order Arduino systems from several places, including Adafruit and Sparkfun. Both companies have lots of tutorials and howtos to get you started with Arduinos. If you’re looking for a local source to get Arduinos, try Trossen Robotics.

We have a new option for you to get arduino supplies: from our Arduino shop (powered by amazon.com) where a small percentage of everything you purchase will go to support Workshop 88.

What you’ll get from this class: If you choose the registration + materials option, we will have an arduino and assortment of electronics components for you to take home after the class. In this class you will learn how to start programming in the Arduino environment including interacting with the inputs and outputs of the Arduino.

You should bring: a laptop with the Arduino environment downloaded installed. 

Please contact us (info@workshop88.com) if you have any questions.
